7mm French Thick Rim Cartridge

← Go Back to see more French Thick Rim Centerfire Cartridges
Type: 7mm French Thick Rim

Additional Info: The French thick rim cartridges were developed to be used in Lefaucheux revolvers that were converted to centerfire. The rim is thick so it would seal the pin hole on the cylinder for the pinfire cartridges. This particular round is unheadstamped and has a flat copper primer. The lead bullet is secured into the case mouth by a heavy roll crimp.
